[44 min] Ḥirbet ḥizʻah [Khirbet Khizeh]: Based on S. Yizhar's 1949 novella of the same name, this television drama portrays the violent expulsion of Palestinian villagers by the Israeli army during the 1948 Israeli-Arab war. The film created a public uproar when it was scheduled to be shown on Israeli television. The government tried to block the broadcast, and the film was aired only after the intervention of the Israeli Supreme Court. The drama marks an important milestone in the emergence of critique within Israel of the role played by Israel in the conflict with Palestinians.
